Looking for remote wall switch

I just noticed that I have several motion detector wall switches on
the shelf. Their maximum ratings are identical to the above Z-Wave
switch. I suspect that this may be a standard rating for triac
controlled electrical switches. The incandescent rating is probably
limited by the filament inrush current. The 15A (1800 watts) by the
code limit for a wall switch electrical circuit. No clue on the 1/2
HP motor. As I previously mumbled, if you need more switching
capability, I suggest using a contactor (relay).

I just realized why you crossposted to both sci.electronics.design and
sci.electronics.repair. If take the advice of those in design, and it
doesn't work, the readers of repair can be expected to fix the damage.
I'm not sure if that actually works, but it's worth trying.
Chuckle, chuckle.

PS. All I'm switching is a 22 watt CFL. One light (only) on the circuit.
The olden days 100 Watt.
Now 22 watt.
